Unique phosphorus nitrogen flame retardant

Great Lakes Chemical Corporation : 26 October, 2001  (New Product)
Great Lakes Chemical Corporation has launched Reogard 1000, a new, highly efficient flame retardant for polypropylene.
Great Lakes Chemical Corporation has launched Reogard 1000, a new, highly efficient flame retardant for polypropylene.

Reogard 1000, a phosphorus nitrogen based, intumescent flame retardant, has unique properties allowing it to be melt-blendable at polypropylene processing temperatures while actually increasing the heat distortion temperature of the formulated polymer.

Reogard 1000 is more efficient than other commonly used intumescent flame retardants, a feature that helps to reduce the specific gravity of the polymer and improve physical properties. Reogard 1000 is also non-blooming, offers good electrical properties, and a reduced tendency to absorb water.

Polypropylene containing the new flame retardant can be processed in standard injection moulding and extrusion equipment. Reogard 1000 is recommended for use in V-0 polypropylene homopolymers and low polyethylene content co-polymers. Reogard 1000 is also effective in a number of impact modified polypropylene grades.

The special features offered by Reogard 1000 now allow polypropylene compounders to extend the potential markets for their flame retarded products.
